What is the meaning, nature and purpose of life?

May 29, 2020 | Awareness | 2 comments

This post explains what life is, its meaning, nature and purpose. In doing so, you sense that life is one and everything has value. This understanding allows you to accept and handle any challenge as it arises. With such faith, help and resources come forth with ease. As a result, the mind becomes relaxed, enlightened, and wise. In effect, worries, fears and mental suffering leave your space for good.

Everything in life connects and has value.

What is life and its purpose?

 

Life is an unending space that exists to express and know itself. To do this, it takes many forms that move, act and change. In short, this movement is ‘life energy’. By realising this, you accept that every being has purpose and value.

Every form and action that exists is life energy. To gain a visual idea of how this works, imagine taking a bead of water from the ocean. In this image, you’re the droplet, and the sea is life energy. Every object and form is a drop from this infinite ocean. In reality, you are life and nothing is separate. To reach this knowledge, witness, allow and let go of your mind’s labels. By doing this, you regard every action taking place as life interacting with itself.

Challenge and change are part of life’s overall energy. On account of this, it’s vital to accept and allow such events. Don’t use this insight as an excuse to become inactive. The mind finds it easy to lose itself on teachings such as “Everything is fine and one”. These quotes can lead you to ask: ‘why bother taking any action’? Understand that life energy works through you to express, relate, and know itself. For these reasons, you must take wise action when necessary. On balance, see yourself as part of one life connecting with every form. This pointer helps you to accept, allow, handle, and move through any challenge.

By nature, life is whole and balanced. To connect with these traits, notice your mind’s clouds of excess thought and allow them to disperse. In doing so, life’s qualities shine forth and you realise your purpose. In essence, the reason you exist is to live out your natural expression as life intends. This purpose holds true for every form of life.

Droplets of water are small fractions of a larger body. In the same way, you are a part of life.

How does life energy understand its nature?

 

Life energy uses action, contrasts, and form to understand its nature. It gains further insight by creating and witnessing change. Watch these traits occur within and around you. This vision helps you accept life’s diverse role and release the mind’s struggle.

Life expresses itself through a range of unique events, contrasts, and shifts. If you resist these movements, they create conflict and pain in your space. To recognise this, note the changing emotions within your mind, such as fear and joy. What happens when you oppose fear? Chances are, you sense a backlash where it’s as though you’re fighting yourself – thus creating more fear. If you fight joyous states, a similar recoil of conflict takes place. These mindsets are forms of life energy as it goes through contrasts. For this reason, pain occurs when trying to fight or avoid its shifts and movements.

If you think of yourself as separate from life, you’re bound to fight against it. Witness this in past and present wars that display a mindset of “us vs them”. In these cases, each party views itself as separate from the other. These groups mirror your battle against painful emotions. Remember that thoughts are different forms of life energy. As long as you fight against them, tension and unhappiness survive. These mindsets result from your resistance and sense of separation to life.

By viewing life as one being that embodies everything, you have no reason to attack it. It’s then easy to accept and allow what arises. This release removes the mind’s pain and sorrow. From here, you become privy to more complete solutions and ideas that align with your true purpose. In summary, life understands its diverse nature through you. By accepting this, the mind soon releases its struggle.

 

The river, trees, stream and all forms are life energy. Without the mind's labels, they share the same divine name.

What happens when you realise life’s wholeness?

 

Once you realise life’s wholeness, its challenges pass with ease and change is more bearable. This embrace allows you to face the diverse sides of life. It’s then possible to live out your purpose with freedom. Such free space lies beyond the limits of the brain. When connecting with this wholeness, ease and balance flow into your life.

Life is a whole movement where several actions work with one another. This dynamic is obvious in the body, as nothing in it functions alone. For example, the brain and internal organs act together to help you survive. Personal life events happen the same way. Take the case of your birth. It’s the result of billions of occurrences and unions. These stem from the birth and death of stars. Here, you accept that each event in life happens because of many past episodes and actions working together.

When you perceive life’s scope, it’s clear how everything connects. Each moment you experience depends on a vast number of events that align. If one past instance was different, the present outcome changes. In time, you realise you’re part of this cycle of cause and effect. This faith has no condition, and nothing can break it. From this point, you realise that life knows what’s best for your growth. This insight helps you accept that problems and trials have a valid place in reality. These help you grow aware of imbalances before allowing the mind to settle. In effect, you form a robust connection, scope, and trust in life.

As the mind’s imbalances fade, inner peace within you awakens. The mind then feels fresh, and your actions become informed and wise. Once you fathom life’s wholeness this way, everything moves in line with your purpose and growth. This openness allows balance and peace to thrive.

 

Once you are aware of something, it can no longer hide or pretend to be you.

What makes your journey in life unique?

 

Your entire being, form and presence on earth make the human journey in life unique. In short, no two beings are identical. Through accepting this, you realise life and its course are one of a kind. No one else will have the same experiences as you. On that account, you stop seeking approval and desire to compare yourself to others.

Life creates humans with endless range and diversity. Some are closer to balance, while others are further away. To know its wholeness, life must create imbalances to learn about itself and realise this state. With such intent, every being moves toward harmony, just as hot air becomes cool. Despite this, accept that not everyone is ready to move through this path. Others are on a unique, diverse path as much as you.

Life brings forth tests and change. These trials serve the purpose of growth and move you toward higher awareness. There soon comes a point where the pain brought by change drives you to explore life in more detail. Here, questions about life, suffering and its nature arise. Have you had enough sorrow? Are you fed up with looking for answers from elsewhere? If the answer is “yes” to these questions, you’re ready for inner awareness and balance. Indeed, lots of people won’t take heed of these signs and continue suffering. It’s possible that they’re not yet willing to grow by facing life’s tests, pain, and change.

When the earth shifts toward balance, more humans will awaken from their minds. Your awakening aids this movement by forming a ripple effect that helps each person within its field. Shifts such as these make your life’s journey unique. Here, you accept its nature and don’t feel the urge to compare, judge, or confirm your qualities against others.

 

As you move to a more aware mind, know that it's your journey.

Does life’s movement ever end?

 

Life’s movement never ends. It continues expressing, watching, and creating forms. These actions have a cause and effect. Each one leads to more events taking place in an endless rhythm. By accepting this truth, you realise that change occurs in life’s unchanging space. In brief, this knowledge prevents you from losing yourself in the mind’s thoughts, emotions, or outside circumstances. It’s then easy to learn and enlighten yourself on new things.

As parts of life’s awareness, the body and mind are temporary, brief movements. Yet your pure, spacious nature is permanent and immortal. It remains despite birth and death. If everything in life vanished – your friends, job, body, house, car, money and spouse, who would you be? Life uses such gulfs to show itself in different ways. To confirm how this takes place, witness the leaves shed during autumn. When each leaf dies and falls to the ground, it decays to form soil. Soon, new plants and trees grow from this compost. This cycle and the space where it occurs are eternal. Such aware movements in life have no beginning or end.

In the vastness of space, birth and death occur. Despite these shifts, life remains and continues. Accept this truth and you no longer fear the mind, change, or death. From here, no thought, event, or emotion affects your inner peace. This spacious state is where you gain knowledge and enlighten yourself on life.

 

Life is a constant journey of enlightenment and gaining knowledge.

What does enlightenment mean?

 

The word enlightenment points to a state where you understand something. In life, this means you engage in constant growth and learning. Don’t mistake enlightenment for a high or divine state of being. In contrast, it’s a natural state where you’re open to discover and learn facts. Such a mind remains flexible and adapts to life’s shifting nature. This truth makes enlightenment a part of life’s ongoing purpose and journey. This course has no end, as life never stops learning.

Each person seeks to gain more knowledge, peace, balance, and enlightenment. To reach these goals, let go of seeking, witness your mind, then allow its past momentum to release. Once this process ends, the mind’s space frees. This openness places it in the best position to learn new truths. From this point, past worries, fears and regrets no longer have any influence. When going through this journey, you learn how everything moves within life’s space. Here, the mind is open, ready, and poised for enlightenment. It’s then easy to gain new insights that lead to balance and peace.

Life leads you through constant growth and learning. For this reason, you cannot become enlightened about something by aiming to escape or avoid it. This truth prevents you from wasting time on rituals, dogmas, or acts of penance. In reality, you gain the most knowledge by allowing and moving through each experience. On balance, the human journey grants you the chance to connect with life’s wholeness. This goal is the ongoing purpose of enlightenment and life. With this insight, outside events or mental troubles lead toward better knowledge, growth, and learning. Such a journey has no end.
